7. "I made advances towards multiple women in work-related situations, where it was clearly inappropriate. I put people in compromising and inappropriate situations, and I selfishly took advantage of those situations where I should have known better. My behavior was inexcusable and wrong."
8. "I would like to apologize for being a clueless, selfish, unapologetic and defensive ass."
9. "I'm ashamed I didn't change my behavior until I was forced to do so by circumstance and by others."
10. "When confronted about what happened, I was at first defensive. What did I do wrong? We were just hanging out! Why are people so upset? I tried to present my crappy behavior in the best possible light. ... I rationalized my actions and came up with reasons to find blame in others, rather than solely with me."
Responses to the confessional posts have been mixed.
Kunst had called for McClure's resignation, saying: "I want to live in a world where being in tech doesn't mean having to be harassed or mistreated. We're getting there. Slowly."
Some praised the courage it took the investors to fess up.
"Thanks Chris for taking responsibility where you feel like you've been at fault. That's not an easy thing to do. Thank you for using your voice and your resources to make a dent in this issue. Like you, I want my daughter to have the same opportunities that my son will have, especially in our field," writes Tegan, who works at a digital marketing agency in Dallas.
Others found the apologies too little, too late.
"Why do people think writing an apology like this takes courage?" asks Neelam Chakrabarty, the CEO and co-founder of Oroola, a collaboration platform for parents, in response to McClure's post on Medium.
"In fact it's the simplest way out for such people — say sorry, get some sympathy from folks, and you are on your way to changing the world again! In my opinion, once a creep, always a creep, this doesn't change anything, people. ... [H]e (and other such creeps) will be back in action, doing the same thing. It would have been a sincere apology if he had done it on his own and not waited until he was caught."
